Hi**** my name is**** Type 1 diabetic for 17 years from Australia. I think it's great people are giving advice on the GF situation but what really scares me is your going so low that 911 had to be called. I think this is where you need to focus. If you don't start looking after yourself your girlfriend will be the least of your troubles. Sorry to be so blunt, but we live with a serious disease and need to get serious about it. My questions are; what insulin and units are you on? What are your sugars like before bed? Is there a specific time in the night this happens? What was your last hba1c result?
I myself have been lucky to have survived two very near fatal lows whilst asleep. I was just lucky my husband was next to me. The first time was entirely my fault, played a game of laser tag on a hill, went to a party, ate little, drank to much. During the night my husband noticed I was very sweaty, tried to wake me and I didn't respond. He then realised what was going and started shoving lollies in my mouth. I slowly started to come to after 1/2 an hour, where I was trying to speak to him but couldn't remember how. Then after an hour I was finally coherent enough to do my blood sugars and they were around 1 which I think converts 18 by US standards, so you could imagine how low I was before. It's so scary to realise if I was alone I would have died and that is quite a wake up call. I hope we can work together to make sure you don't go so low again :)
